ERIN JESTER Alligator Staff Writer The Florida Alliance for Student Action is holding Gov. Rick Scott to his pledge to oppose tuition hikes for Florida students. Scott announced this week that he would oppose raising tuition by 8 percent at Florida colleges and universities. We see it as a victory for students across Florida, said Cassia Laham, 22, statewide coordinator for FASA. But you also have to take everything Rick Scott says with a grain of salt. Scotts refusal comes with the caveat that Floridas focus should be on reducing costs. That means cutting programs and putting more classes online, which is unacceptable, Laham said. During February, FASA, a network of Florida college and university students, will organize events on campuses across the state calling for the legislature to pass laws ensuring affordable, quality education. The month-long campaign will culminate in a day of action on March 1, when all Florida FASA chapters will coordinate one action to send a clear message against what they call legislators attacks on education. Quality education must stay affordable in Florida, Laham said, which wont happen if the legislature still allows low tax rates for the wealthy.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 3 UF WILL MATCH THE GIFT TO FUND BRAIN TUMOR RESEARCH. CLARE LENNONAlligator Staff WriterUFs neurosurgery department plans to use $20 million to research the causes of brain tumors. A $10 million gift from the Wells Foundation, matched by another $10 million from UF, will bring a team of scientists to the university, said Dr. William Friedman, chairman of UFs Department of Neurosurgery. About 20,000 tumors originated in the brain are diagnosed in the U.S. each year. Half of those are gliomas, to treat and cure, he said. The scientists will research what causes brain tumors and how they form. Friedman said he hopes that will help doctors determine a cure. He said UFs neurosurgery department is in the countrys top 10 in patient volume, and its not a shortage of doctors thats the problem. We need scientists, he said. Friedman said the team of scientists will mostly focus on glioma brain tumors. He described current treatment as dismal. The Wells Foundation gave $5 million in 2006 to establish the Preston A. Wells Jr. Center for Brain Tumor Therapy, according to a UF news release. This donation will create the Lillian S. Wells Fund for Brain Tumor Research.UF receives $10M for neurosurgery dept.

Maximum vacation leave accrual for faculty at years end was reduced from 480 hours to 352 hours. Payment for unused sick leave will be eliminated, except for eligible faculty who retire on or before June 30, 2016. Paula Fussell, vice president of Human Resource Services, said faculty members are generally happy with the raise, which was initially proposed in June. It balances a state law passed last year requiring state employees to contribute to their own retirement funds. It depends on which faculty you talk to, but overall I think the faculty receiving the 3 percent payment are pleased and understand the tradeoff for the leave changes, Fussell said. United Faculty of Florida has not yet agreed to the proposal, excluding faculty union members from the raise.

Twenty feet of asphalt just past mile-marker 379 is discolA black shadow lurks over the middle and right lanes. The burned black pavement is spotted with four mounds of gritty asphalt, each about as wide as a beach ball and as tall as a speed bump. When cars speed over the bumps and the 20 feet of tar nished road, tires grumble. The Florida Department of Transportation will repave the two burned southbound lanes, most likely within the next month, FDOT spokeswoman Gina Busscher said. Most of the damage is only in southbound lanes, Busscher said. There are little cuts in the pavement going northbound to be repaired near mile-marker 380. Despite this, she was reassuring. Drivers should not be hesitant, she said. There is no danger here. Until the inspectors at FDOT determine the extent of the road damage, Busscher said, the cost of the repairs will be unknown.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5 MEREDITH RUTLANDAlligator Staff WriterCutting aid to colleges that do not keep tuition low and doubling the cur rent number of available work-study jobs are highlights of the Obama administrations blueprint for keeping higher education affordable. Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of Education Arne Duncan discussed the blueprint with college jour nalists during a press conference call Thursday. The plan details proposed limit tuition increases. While state governments handle public university funding and individual universities determine how to allocate their budgets, the federal government has the power to provide student Vice President Joe Biden said the president plans to put several programs into place in the coming year. The administration plans to aid colleges that initiate programs that keep college affordable and reduce aid to colleges that do not keep tuition low. The colleges affordability will be based on the net tuition, which is what a student pays on average after considering scholarships and loans. The administration also plans to expand existing feder aid programs. Biden said the government cur rently pays $980 million to fund 710,000 student work-study jobs. He said the president plans to double the number of work-study jobs available. The presidents goal is to make the U.S. the country with the highest per cent of college graduates, Biden said. The U.S. is currently No. 17 on that list. Any country that out-educates us is going to out-compete us, Biden said.Biden touts tuition plan BENJAMIN S.

Have a fun and safe weekend, and be sure to check back next week! 14th Amendment wrongly interpretedNot only does immigration keep our national demographics from stagnating, but it also adds to the grants. Almost every one of our family histories includes an immigrant, yet we come together with shared values and have built the most prosperous country in the world. Personally, I do not have a problem with immigration. I think we should welcome everyone. But one phenomenon has always bothered me: anchor babies.Children born on American soil gain birthright citizenship. Anchor babies refers to children of illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. to give birth solely to increase their chances of becoming legal residents because of their childs citizenship status. The idea of birthright citizenship should be revoked because it is unconstitutional and not economical. Many point to the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution as the basis for birthright citizenship. It states, All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States The purpose of the Fourteenth Amendment was to grant citizenship to recently freed slaves after the Civil War, not to provide blanket birthright citizenship. Many people simply disregard the subject to the jurisdiction thereof portion of the amendment as old English. But it, like every other word and phrase in the Constitution, serves a purpose. According to Sen. Howard in 1866, the Fourteenth Amendment applies to all people born in the U.S., except foreigners, aliens and families of ambassadors or foreign ministers. Sen. Trumbull, the writer of the Thirteenth Amendment, also commented on the subject to the jurisdiction thereof, This means having no allegiance to foreign countries. The interpretation of the Fourteenth Amendment has been misconstrued to mean birthright citizenship, so much so that there have been a few recent Congressional movements to The cost of anchor babies is increasing because the number of these children is on the rise. According to a 2009 Pew Research Center report, 73 per cent of children born to illegal immigrants were born in the U.S. and were thus granted birthright citizenship. According to that same report, almost 7 percent of children in kindergarten through 12th-grade public education had one parent who was an illegal immigrant. Illegal aliens usually have their children in the emergency room because, by federal mandate, the E.R. must take and treat all patients, regardless of ability to pay. According to a 2007 Accuracy in Media special report, birthing babies to illegal immigrants in emergency rooms around the country costs taxpayers between $3 billion and $6 billion a year. Because of their economic situations, mothers of anchor babies are usually eligible for WIC assistance from the federal government. Illegal immigrants do not pay federal income taxes. So who foots the bill for the cost to birth, feed and school anchor babies? The answer is the American taxpayer. Clearly, birthright citizenship has encouraged people to come here illegally, have their children and live off our countrys gener ous social safety net, putting a burden on the economy. It really is a shame that immigration has become such a heated topic that people cant talk about it without shouting or getting out of their seats. I do sympathize with the people who look to America as a place for better lives for their children, but there has to be some sense of order to the immigration process. Anchor babies hurt the U.S. economy and undermine the Constitution. We ought to have a second look at the Four teenth Amendment and remove the incentive of birthright citizenship.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 I confess that in the course of my very busy days here at UF, I rarely am afforded the opportunity to read the Alligator, let alone write in to opine. However, after reading Luke Baileys column Rituals still have value in the age of reason referencing the Writing on the Wall exhibit, I felt compelled to refute some of his statements. Bailey states, Sure, there are some backward holdovers the right-wing fundamentalists, the street preachers and the Luddites but they represent a small niche on campus, and we all attend class in an environment where Robespierre would feel right at home. What was the authors purpose in making a statement like that, even when discussing a worthy expression of campus unity? Is the author somehow now the anointed arbiter of reason to the extent that he feels comfortable framing his arguments in such a publicly condescending manner? What about left-wing fundamentalists? Are they somehow more reasonable? Occupiers are they somehow more sincere than street preachers? Militant atheists do they speak for the majority? All are ideological minorities to be sure, but probably far too fashionable to draw the Anointed Elites ire as less than reasonable, I suspect. As to the comment concerning a classroom environment which would make Robespierre feel at home, I found this both profoundly ludicrous and rather instructive as to the authors worldview in making such extravagantly preposterous statements. If a sophisticated Frenchman needed to illustrate the learning environment we enjoy here at UF, I would think one might select someone like Louis Pasteur, Jules Verne or Alexis de Tocqueville rather than a butcher like Robespierre, who read a little Rousseau at school, argued against the death penalty and declared himself a moderate in his famous phrase ni monarchiste ni rpublicain (neither monarchist nor republican). He later decided to become the arbiter of reason by bathing in the blood of thousands of his countrymen during the Reign of Terror. I dont know how things are done in the authors history department, but they luckily arent nearly that reasonable anywhere else that I can see. Later, Bailey goes on to say, We no longer light incense or pray to the Virgin Mary were much too clever for that. Au contraire. Just across University Avenue is a rather large Catholic church and student center St. Augustines. Weve all noticed it. There are also Jewish, Lutheran, Islamic and Protestant houses of worship along the same street. But according to the author, presumably only the Great Unwashed still believe in such quaint and illogical beliefs. To this I would counter that my fellow students, probably tices which, though the elite among us may not approve of them, are neither unreasonable nor illogical. their beliefs preferable to those of everyone else, using dismissive narratives to buttress their own vain assumptions. This is a capital mistake. Be they Catholic or Protestant, Muslim or Jewish, agnostic or devout, rest assured that they all prefer their views to those of others; otherwise they wouldnt hold them. The major difference is, they dont take to the presses to smugly condescend to everyone else around them for not being as brilliant as they. I found it ironic that Abdul Zalikhas article on the opposing page from Baileys was about not being dismissive of the thoughts of others, even when they may appear potentially disagreeable, as in the case of 9/11 Truthers. Because he is a history major, I know that a valuable lesson the author might take away from his training is the danger of dismissing ideas, particularly when, historically, the loudest mockers often end up being the ones dismissed themselves over the course of time. The rights to self-determination, especially religious liberty, and the struggle to attain and retain the same is a basic tenet of all mankind, no matter ones nationality. But only in America is such a rich inheritance the birthright of every one of us to jealously guard against all trespasses no matter how unreasonable this may seem to those who think they must know better than we. I would respectfully suggest that some still have a great deal to learn about a great deal of things. My hope is that they are taught as quickly as possible because the responsibility for defending personal liberty against those who pur port to know better than we how to live, think and pray, and who are invariably only acting for our own good, has already fallen to each and every young American. Beware, for each one of these you depose, there will always be another coming along to take its place, possibly even from the history department. We just hunted them down and killed them. Joshua Fonzi is a microbiology and cell science and entomology and nematology senior at UF.Columnist shows elitism when addressing classroom, religionGuest columnJoshua FonziSpeaking Out Last week, Google announced its new privacy policy, which will take effect March 1. The policy strives for simplicity in both of Googles services, products and websites. The notable changes in the policy focus on the merges and the ways this will affect advertising and the overall privacy of Googles users. While Google reasons that having one and advertisers, there are privacy advocates who are alarmed by the changes. Jeffery Chester, executive director at The Center for Digital Democracy, told NPR that online advertisers want to be assured that they can access users online, knowing everything possible about them, which Googles privacy changes would provide. Despite these baseless concerns, Googles senior vice president, Alan Eustace, told NPR that collecting data from multiple Google services will give users innovative experiences. For example, by combining information gathered from the calendar feature Google can determine what time a user can leave his or her house so he or she can arrive at a scheduled meeting in San Francisco without worrying about road congestion. The changes made to Googles privacy policy would likely not affect the lives of everyday citizens and the new policy pledges to request consent for further changes. If users are still not convinced that the changes are harmless, there are options. One option is to disable cookies on your Internet browser because cookies play track you across its services. In addition, one can choose not to use Google. Because of the innovative and competitive Internet environment, there are other search engines, email accounts, social networking sites and service options other than Google, including Hotmail and Bing. At the very least, Google is giving users enough time to adjust should they decide to close their Gmail or YouTube accounts. Ultimately, privacy groups can reprimand these policy changes, but few people seem to care about how their data is used, as shown by the popularity of Facebook. There is no doubt that Google is prevachanging Internet culture. The Internet and all the technological devices that access it can be easily valued as a human right. In fact, last June the United Nations published a report declaring Internet access a fundamental human right. Viewing the Internet in this sense allows us to easily forget that there are real companies seeking revenue that can justify giving advertisers user data because this business model has gone relatively unchallenged.

Aundre Larrow / Alligator StaffFlorida freshman guard Brad Beal scored 17 points and grabbed 11 rebounds Thursday in the Gators 74-66 win against South Carolina. UF WON 74-66 THURSDAY. JOHN BOOTHEAlligator Staff Writer When South Carolina hosted Florida nearly three weeks ago, the Gamecocks allowed their visitors to shoot 50 percent from three and son before they left town. On Thursday night at the OConnell Center, the Gamecocks proved to be a far less gracious defensive team. Due to a season-low 25 percent shooting effort from three, the No. 12 Gators (18-4, 6-1 Southeastern Conference) were forced to hit the glass and clean up their misses to hold on in a 74-66 win against the Gamecocks (9-12, 1-6 SEC). We almost got caught because I didnt think we had great maturity and understanding about the things you can control, UF coach Billy Donovan said. I told the players after the game, If you can control shooting the ball, wed never miss a shot. While Donovan described the Gators offensive performance as woeful, Floridas players maintained a frenetic pace on the boards whenever they did miss. shots were the second-fewest its made all season, but the team made up for it by garnering a 42-30 edge on the boards and scoring 17 second-chance points off 20 offensive rebounds. What won the game for us [Thursday] was that we really did a great job getting to the offensive glass, Donovan said. After an early barrage of three 3-pointers from Florida guards Kenny Boynton and Erving Walker built a double-digit lead just under seven minutes into the game, South Carolina clamped down its perimeter defense with an extended zone. The Gamecocks held the Gators to 1 of 13 from three in the second half. The switch from a man-to-man shooting into a tailspin, but yielded plenty of chances for offensive rebounds, which freshman Brad Beal took full advantage of. Despite going up against the SECs top defensive rebounding team, the 6-foot-3 Beal hauled in fensive glass and scored 17 points on 5-of-11 shooting. Coach got in our heads all week in practice about the (small forward, power forward and centers) going for the offensive rewe had 14, so I really wanted to attack the glass because they werent blocking out. Beal, who leads Florida in defensive rebounds this season, had been held without an offensive board in four of his six previous SEC games. The Gators, meanwhile, were out-rebounded as a team in four of day. Me probably being on him the last two days, telling him hes got two offensive rebounds in six games maybe had something to do with it, too, Donovan said. [Beal] and Erik Murphy, if you look at the SEC (schedule), Kenny Boynton has more offensive rebounds than both. three rebounds, and Walker with 24 and 14, respectively, but no other Florida players scored more Boynton, on a 4-of-8 perfor mance from three, helped seal the victory and extend the Gators per of his game-high eight free throws In my freshman year, we kind of let some home wins slip away, Boynton said. We learned from those and we just got to keep moving forward. Contact John Boothe at jboothe@ alligator.org.Gators hold off late charge by CocksWOMENsS BasASKETBallALL JOE MORGANAlligator Staff Writer No Jordan Jones, no problem for the Gators. Without its second-leading scorer and team captain, Florida completed just its season sweep of LSU in program history with a 73-64 victory on the road Thursday night. Jones, a redshirt senior guard, was ruled out before tip-off due to a concussion suffered during last Sundays game against Arkansas. Our seniors, collectively, really did a great job, coach Amanda Butler said. Its just really hard to point out one or two people because it really truly was a team effort. One senior who stepped up to Azania Stewart. points and 10 rebounds both team-best marks recording her Joining Stewart with solid efforts in the post were redshirt senior Ndidi Madu and junior Jennifer George. Madu scored a season-high 12 points while George chipped in nine, but the duo managed just three combined rebounds. Georges numbers were lower than her season averages due in part to her early foul trouble. Azania was absolutely huge, Ndidis play was huge, Butler said. George gave us a spurt there for a while when we did go a little bit cold. George was one of three Gators joining senior guards Deana Allen and Lanita Bartley to record two fouls minutes of the game. Due to a combination of Jones injury and early foul trouble for Allen and Bartley, freshman Andrea Vilaro Aragones assumed an increased role. The Spanish guard provided a boost in the transition game and the press for Florida, setting careerpoints and a team-best four steals. Since we were a little bit shorthanded and got ourselves in some foul trouble, we started to get a little bit tired, Butler said. When one person went out, someone else stepped in and took up the slack. Aragones was part of a balanced offensive game from the guard position. Bartley tied for the team lead with 12 points while Allen and sophomore Jaterra Bonds scored nine each. For the fourth time this season, scored. We were doing a pretty good job of moving the ball around and took, for the most part, pretty good shots on the outside, Butler said. We talked about not shooting our selves out of it. While Florida managed offensively sans Jones, the team also turned in a solid defensive perfor mance. The Gators scored 26 points off 22 turnovers by the Tigers. We had so much more focus on playing great defense than hitting shots, Butler said. We just werent concerned about that. We knew we would hit enough (shots).

ERIN JESTER Alligator Staff Writer The Florida Alliance for Student Action is holding Gov. Rick Scott to his pledge to oppose tuition hikes for Florida students. Scott announced this week that he would oppose raising tuition by 8 percent at Florida colleges and universities. We see it as a victory for students across Florida, said Cassia Laham, 22, statewide coordinator for FASA. But you also have to take everything Rick Scott says with a grain of salt. Scotts refusal comes with the caveat that Floridas focus should be on reducing costs. That means cutting programs and putting more classes online, which is unacceptable, Laham said. During February, FASA, a network of Florida college and university students, will organize events on campuses across the state calling for the legislature to pass laws ensuring affordable, quality education. The month-long campaign will culminate in a day of action on March 1, when all Florida FASA chapters will coordinate one action to send a clear message against what they call legislators attacks on education. Quality education must stay affordable in Florida, Laham said, which wont happen if the legislature still allows low tax rates for the wealthy.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 3 UF WILL MATCH THE GIFT TO FUND BRAIN TUMOR RESEARCH. CLARE LENNONAlligator Staff WriterUFs neurosurgery department plans to use $20 million to research the causes of brain tumors. A $10 million gift from the Wells Foundation, matched by another $10 million from UF, will bring a team of scientists to the university, said Dr. William Friedman, chairman of UFs Department of Neurosurgery. About 20,000 tumors originated in the brain are diagnosed in the U.S. each year. Half of those are gliomas, to treat and cure, he said. The scientists will research what causes brain tumors and how they form. Friedman said he hopes that will help doctors determine a cure. He said UFs neurosurgery department is in the countrys top 10 in patient volume, and its not a shortage of doctors thats the problem. We need scientists, he said. Friedman said the team of scientists will mostly focus on glioma brain tumors. He described current treatment as dismal. The Wells Foundation gave $5 million in 2006 to establish the Preston A. Wells Jr. Center for Brain Tumor Therapy, according to a UF news release. This donation will create the Lillian S. Wells Fund for Brain Tumor Research.UF receives $10M for neurosurgery dept.

Maximum vacation leave accrual for faculty at years end was reduced from 480 hours to 352 hours. Payment for unused sick leave will be eliminated, except for eligible faculty who retire on or before June 30, 2016. Paula Fussell, vice president of Human Resource Services, said faculty members are generally happy with the raise, which was initially proposed in June. It balances a state law passed last year requiring state employees to contribute to their own retirement funds. It depends on which faculty you talk to, but overall I think the faculty receiving the 3 percent payment are pleased and understand the tradeoff for the leave changes, Fussell said.

The burned black pavement is spotted with four mounds of gritty asphalt, each about as wide as a beach ball and as tall as a speed bump. When cars speed over the bumps and the 20 feet of tar nished road, tires grumble. The Florida Department of Transportation will repave the two burned southbound lanes, most likely within the next month, FDOT spokeswoman Gina Busscher said. Most of the damage is only in southbound lanes, Busscher said. There are little cuts in the pavement going northbound to be repaired near mile-marker 380. Despite this, she was reassuring. Drivers should not be hesitant, she said. There is no danger here. Until the inspectors at FDOT determine the extent of the road damage, Busscher said, the cost of the repairs will be unknown.

While state governments handle public university funding and individual universities determine how to allocate their budgets, the federal government has the power to provide student Vice President Joe Biden said the president plans to put several programs into place in the coming year. The administration plans to aid colleges that initiate programs that keep college affordable and reduce aid to colleges that do not keep tuition low. The colleges affordability will be based on the net tuition, which is what a student pays on average after considering scholarships and loans. The administration also plans to expand existing feder aid programs. Biden said the government cur rently pays $980 million to fund 710,000 student work-study jobs. He said the president plans to double the number of work-study jobs available. The presidents goal is to make the U.S. the country with the highest per cent of college graduates, Biden said. The U.S. is currently No. 17 on that list. Any country that out-educates us is going to out-compete us, Biden said.Biden touts tuition plan BENJAMIN S.

Thats why its time for this weeks ifyou-bring-anything-with-the-phrase-hard-in-it-youreuninvited edition of...Darts & LaurelsTo kick it off, for thinking that anyone cares, we toss a youre-not-that-damn-important DART to Donald Trump, who kept the press on the edge of its seat yesterday as it awaited the announcement of whom he would endorse for president. Guess what? It doesnt matter one bit. Next up, in honor of the weekend, we give a perfectexcuse-to-drink-and-eat-like-crap LAUREL to Super Bowl parties. Whether or not you care whos playing or even if you dislike football, who can be against an excuse to party? For being completely disgusting and kind of creepy, we give a think-of-the-worst-disease-ever-then-multiply-by100 DART to USA300 across Britain that apparently can spread by sneezing. It also causes boils and eats away at lung tissue. Great! For perpetrating a great prank, we give a be-carefulwho-you-give-creative-license-to LAUREL to the inmate from Vermont who, when tasked with designing decals for police cruisers, implanted the shape of a pig on the state seal. If you look closely at the seal, which is part of the decal on police cruisers, you can see that one of the cows spots is shaped like a pig. Brilliant. For lacking restraint and reasoning skills, we throw a police-need-to-chill-the-eff-out DART to Calumet City poin Illinois, who shot and killed a 15-year-old boy with Aspergers syndrome, a mild form of autism. a kitchen knife, but his family said he was holding a butter knife. What a disgrace! Finally, we give a thank-you-for-showing-some-humanity LAUREL to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for not deporting Lidiane Carmo, a victim of the Interstate 75 crash last weekend, who lost her entire family. Carmo, 15, and her family were living in the U.S. on expired work visas. Have a fun and safe weekend, and be sure to check back next week! 14th Amendment wrongly interpretedNot only does immigration keep our national demographics from stagnating, but it also adds to the grants. Almost every one of our family histories includes an immigrant, yet we come together with shared values and have built the most prosperous country in the world. Personally, I do not have a problem with immigration. I think we should welcome everyone. But one phenomenon has always bothered me: anchor babies.Children born on American soil gain birthright citizenship. Anchor babies refers to children of illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. to give birth solely to increase their chances of becoming legal residents because of their childs citizenship status. The idea of birthright citizenship should be revoked because it is unconstitutional and not economical. Many point to the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution as the basis for birthright citizenship. It states, All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States The purpose of the Fourteenth Amendment was to grant citizenship to recently freed slaves after the Civil War, not to provide blanket birthright citizenship. Many people simply disregard the subject to the jurisdiction thereof portion of the amendment as old English. But it, like every other word and phrase in the Constitution, serves a purpose. According to Sen. Howard in 1866, the Fourteenth Amendment applies to all people born in the U.S., except foreigners, aliens and families of ambassadors or foreign ministers. Sen. Trumbull, the writer of the Thirteenth Amendment, also commented on the subject to the jurisdiction thereof, This means having no allegiance to foreign countries. The interpretation of the Fourteenth Amendment has been misconstrued to mean birthright citizenship, so much so that there have been a few recent Congressional movements to The cost of anchor babies is increasing because the number of these children is on the rise. According to a 2009 Pew Research Center report, 73 per cent of children born to illegal immigrants were born in the U.S. and were thus granted birthright citizenship. According to that same report, almost 7 percent of children in kindergarten through 12th-grade public education had one parent who was an illegal immigrant. Illegal aliens usually have their children in the emergency room because, by federal mandate, the E.R. must take and treat all patients, regardless of ability to pay. According to a 2007 Accuracy in Media special report, birthing babies to illegal immigrants in emergency rooms around the country costs taxpayers between $3 billion and $6 billion a year. Because of their economic situations, mothers of anchor babies are usually eligible for WIC assistance from the federal government. Illegal immigrants do not pay federal income taxes. So who foots the bill for the cost to birth, feed and school anchor babies? The answer is the American taxpayer. Clearly, birthright citizenship has encouraged people to come here illegally, have their children and live off our countrys gener ous social safety net, putting a burden on the economy. It really is a shame that immigration has become such a heated topic that people cant talk about it without shouting or getting out of their seats. I do sympathize with the people who look to America as a place for better lives for their children, but there has to be some sense of order to the immigration process. Anchor babies hurt the U.S. economy and undermine the Constitution. We ought to have a second look at the Four teenth Amendment and remove the incentive of birthright citizenship.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 I confess that in the course of my very busy days here at UF, I rarely am afforded the opportunity to read the Alligator, let alone write in to opine. However, after reading Luke Baileys column Rituals still have value in the age of reason referencing the Writing on the Wall exhibit, I felt compelled to refute some of his statements. Bailey states, Sure, there are some backward holdovers the right-wing fundamentalists, the street preachers and the Luddites but they represent a small niche on campus, and we all attend class in an environment where Robespierre would feel right at home. What was the authors purpose in making a statement like that, even when discussing a worthy expression of campus unity? Is the author somehow now the anointed arbiter of reason to the extent that he feels comfortable framing his arguments in such a publicly condescending manner? What about left-wing fundamentalists? Are they somehow more reasonable? Occupiers are they somehow more sincere than street preachers? Militant atheists do they speak for the majority? All are ideological minorities to be sure, but probably far too fashionable to draw the Anointed Elites ire as less than reasonable, I suspect. As to the comment concerning a classroom environment which would make Robespierre feel at home, I found this both profoundly ludicrous and rather instructive as to the authors worldview in making such extravagantly preposterous statements. If a sophisticated Frenchman needed to illustrate the learning environment we enjoy here at UF, I would think one might select someone like Louis Pasteur, Jules Verne or Alexis de Tocqueville rather than a butcher like Robespierre, who read a little Rousseau at school, argued against the death penalty and declared himself a moderate in his famous phrase ni monarchiste ni rpublicain (neither monarchist nor republican). He later decided to become the arbiter of reason by bathing in the blood of thousands of his countrymen during the Reign of Terror. I dont know how things are done in the authors history department, but they luckily arent nearly that reasonable anywhere else that I can see. Later, Bailey goes on to say, We no longer light incense or pray to the Virgin Mary were much too clever for that. Au contraire. Just across University Avenue is a rather large Catholic church and student center St. Augustines. Weve all noticed it. There are also Jewish, Lutheran, Islamic and Protestant houses of worship along the same street. But according to the author, presumably only the Great Unwashed still believe in such quaint and illogical beliefs. To this I would counter that my fellow students, probably tices which, though the elite among us may not approve of them, are neither unreasonable nor illogical. their beliefs preferable to those of everyone else, using dismissive narratives to buttress their own vain assumptions. This is a capital mistake. Be they Catholic or Protestant, Muslim or Jewish, agnostic or devout, rest assured that they all prefer their views to those of others; otherwise they wouldnt hold them. The major difference is, they dont take to the presses to smugly condescend to everyone else around them for not being as brilliant as they. I found it ironic that Abdul Zalikhas article on the opposing page from Baileys was about not being dismissive of the thoughts of others, even when they may appear potentially disagreeable, as in the case of 9/11 Truthers. Because he is a history major, I know that a valuable lesson the author might take away from his training is the danger of dismissing ideas, particularly when, historically, the loudest mockers often end up being the ones dismissed themselves over the course of time. The rights to self-determination, especially religious liberty, and the struggle to attain and retain the same is a basic tenet of all mankind, no matter ones nationality. But only in America is such a rich inheritance the birthright of every one of us to jealously guard against all trespasses no matter how unreasonable this may seem to those who think they must know better than we. I would respectfully suggest that some still have a great deal to learn about a great deal of things. My hope is that they are taught as quickly as possible because the responsibility for defending personal liberty against those who pur port to know better than we how to live, think and pray, and who are invariably only acting for our own good, has already fallen to each and every young American. Beware, for each one of these you depose, there will always be another coming along to take its place, possibly even from the history department. We just hunted them down and killed them. Joshua Fonzi is a microbiology and cell science and entomology and nematology senior at UF.Columnist shows elitism when addressing classroom, religionGuest columnJoshua FonziSpeaking Out Last week, Google announced its new privacy policy, which will take effect March 1. The policy strives for simplicity in both of Googles services, products and websites. The notable changes in the policy focus on the merges and the ways this will affect advertising and the overall privacy of Googles users. While Google reasons that having one and advertisers, there are privacy advocates who are alarmed by the changes. Jeffery Chester, executive director at The Center for Digital Democracy, told NPR that online advertisers want to be assured that they can access users online, knowing everything possible about them, which Googles privacy changes would provide. Despite these baseless concerns, Googles senior vice president, Alan Eustace, told NPR that collecting data from multiple Google services will give users innovative experiences. For example, by combining information gathered from the calendar feature Google can determine what time a user can leave his or her house so he or she can ar rive at a scheduled meeting in San Francisco without worrying about road congestion. The changes made to Googles privacy policy would likely not affect the lives of everyday citizens and the new policy pledges to request consent for further changes. If users are still not convinced that the changes are harmless, there are options. One option is to disable cookies on your Internet browser because cookies play track you across its services. In addition, one can choose not to use Google. Because of the innovative and competitive Internet environment, there are other search engines, email accounts, social networking sites and service options other than Google, including Hotmail and Bing. At the very least, Google is giving users enough time to adjust should they decide to close their Gmail or YouTube accounts. Ultimately, privacy groups can reprimand these policy changes, but few people seem to care about how their data is used, as shown by the popularity of Facebook. There is no doubt that Google is prevachanging Internet culture. The Internet and all the technological devices that access it can be easily valued as a human right. In fact, last June the United Nations published a report declaring Internet access a fundamental human right. Viewing the Internet in this sense allows us to easily forget that there are real companies seeking revenue that can justify giving advertisers user data because this business model has gone relatively unchallenged.

UF already has four commits for next years class. the UF mens tennis Virginia this weekend. See story, page 14. Aundre Larrow / Alligator StaffFlorida freshman guard Brad Beal scored 17 points and grabbed 11 rebounds Thursday in the Gators 74-66 win against South Carolina. UF WON 74-66 THURSDAY. JOHN BOOTHEAlligator Staff Writer When South Carolina hosted Florida nearly three weeks ago, the Gamecocks allowed their visitors to shoot 50 percent from three and son before they left town. On Thursday night at the OConnell Center, the Gamecocks proved to be a far less gracious defensive team. Due to a season-low 25 percent shooting effort from three, the No. 12 Gators (18-4, 6-1 Southeastern Conference) were forced to hit the glass and clean up their misses to hold on in a 74-66 win against the Gamecocks (9-12, 1-6 SEC). We almost got caught because I didnt think we had great maturity and understanding about the things you can control, UF coach Billy Donovan said. I told the players after the game, If you can control shooting the ball, wed never miss a shot. While Donovan described the Gators offensive performance as woeful, Floridas players maintained a frenetic pace on the boards whenever they did miss. shots were the second-fewest its made all season, but the team made up for it by garnering a 42-30 edge on the boards and scoring 17 second-chance points off 20 offensive rebounds. What won the game for us [Thursday] was that we really did a great job getting to the offensive glass, Donovan said. After an early barrage of three 3-pointers from Florida guards Kenny Boynton and Erving Walker built a double-digit lead just under seven minutes into the game, South Carolina clamped down its perimeter defense with an extended zone. The Gamecocks held the Gators to 1 of 13 from three in the second half. The switch from a man-to-man shooting into a tailspin, but yielded plenty of chances for offensive rebounds, which freshman Brad Beal took full advantage of. Despite going up against the SECs top defensive rebounding team, the 6-foot-3 Beal hauled in fensive glass and scored 17 points on 5-of-11 shooting. Coach got in our heads all week in practice about the (small forward, power forward and centers) going for the offensive rewe had 14, so I really wanted to attack the glass because they werent blocking out. Beal, who leads Florida in defensive rebounds this season, had been held without an offensive board in four of his six previous SEC games. The Gators, meanwhile, were out-rebounded as a team in four of day. Me probably being on him the last two days, telling him hes got two offensive rebounds in six games maybe had something to do with it, too, Donovan said. [Beal] and Erik Murphy, if you look at the SEC (schedule), Kenny Boynton has more offensive rebounds than both. three rebounds, and Walker with 24 and 14, respectively, but no other Florida players scored more Boynton, on a 4-of-8 perfor mance from three, helped seal the victory and extend the Gators per of his game-high eight free throws In my freshman year, we kind of let some home wins slip away, Boynton said.

Without its second-leading scorer and team captain, Florida completed just its season sweep of LSU in program history with a 73-64 victory on the road Thursday night. Jones, a redshirt senior guard, was ruled out before tip-off due to a concussion suffered during last Sundays game against Arkansas. Our seniors, collectively, really did a great job, coach Amanda Butler said. Its just really hard to point out one or two people because it really truly was a team effort. One senior who stepped up to Azania Stewart. points and 10 rebounds both team-best marks recording her Joining Stewart with solid efforts in the post were redshirt senior Ndidi Madu and junior Jennifer George. Madu scored a season-high 12 points while George chipped in nine, but the duo managed just three combined rebounds. Georges numbers were lower than her season averages due in part to her early foul trouble. Azania was absolutely huge, Ndidis play was huge, Butler said. George gave us a spurt there for a while when we did go a little bit cold. George was one of three Gators joining senior guards Deana Allen and Lanita Bartley to record two fouls minutes of the game. Due to a combination of Jones injury and early foul trouble for Allen and Bartley, freshman Andrea Vilaro Aragones assumed an increased role. The Spanish guard provided a boost in the transition game and the press for Florida, setting careerpoints and a team-best four steals. Since we were a little bit shorthanded and got ourselves in some foul trouble, we started to get a little bit tired, Butler said. When one person went out, someone else stepped in and took up the slack. Aragones was part of a balanced offensive game from the guard position. Bartley tied for the team lead with 12 points while Allen and sophomore Jaterra Bonds scored nine each. For the fourth time this season, scored. We were doing a pretty good job of moving the ball around and took, for the most part, pretty good shots on the outside, Butler said. We talked about not shooting our selves out of it. While Florida managed offensively sans Jones, the team also turned in a solid defensive perfor mance. The Gators scored 26 points off 22 turnovers by the Tigers. We had so much more focus on playing great defense than hitting shots, Butler said. We just werent concerned about that. We knew we would hit enough (shots).
